“Secure and isolated infrastructure access with the ability to provide emergency maintenance is crucial to our business. With Tempered Networks we created a private and micro-segmented out-of-band admin overlay network across the LAN and WAN in minutes.”
Director of Infrastructure and Operations, Global Software Company
Configuring secure and segmented connectivity to out-of-band access ports so that IT teams can rapidly address catastrophic network failures is significantly complex. The time, expertise, and budget needed to provision access to management ports using modems, VPNs, or other access methods is impractical, yet still doesn’t prevent hacker reconnaissance and lateral attacks.
People and Process Challenges
Our customers have eliminated the complexity, attack vectors, and costs associated with traditional IT solutions by adopting an identity-centric model for OOMB that’s simpler and more secure. With IDN, you can create secure and private overlay networks (i.e. a ‘side channel’ for peer-to-peer direct secure access) where only trusted admin devices can connect. Authorized IT staff can now connect from any location, across any transport, and quickly update and remediate failed infrastructure.
Our customer was able to give periodic remote access to IT equipment located in datacenters across five countries to address maintenance and troubleshooting issues for systems engineers working for a global software company. Unlike traditional IT solutions, with Tempered Networks IT staff can instantly create isolated overlay networks with encrypted OOB access. IDN ensures network infrastructure is accessible from anywhere—even in case of a catastrophic network outage.
*Traditional IT solutions are the use of firewall rules, NAC, VPNs, switch and router ACLs, digital certificates, cellular modems, VLANs, etc.
*FTE - hours worked by one employee on a full-time basis.
Tempered Networks’ scalable orchestration engine was designed to be extremely easy to use with no advanced technical training and requires little to no change to existing infrastructure. Unlike the many complex, fragile, and disruptive steps associated with traditional IT solutions, our customers eliminate complexity, cost, and attack vectors through point-and-click policy orchestration.
First, our overlay network transparently creates cryptographic machine identities for every device to eliminate spoofing.
Second, every protected devices' network connections are automatically authenticated and authorized between trusted devices before data transport and exchange. Our unique network-level authentication creates verifiable trust segments that can't be discovered or exploited.
Third, all connections are transparently encrypted and encapsulated enabling non-disruptive and secure traversal across any type of network - public or private. Every device can now be quickly connected and protected across any LAN or WAN, segmented across any network and made invisible to hackers.
